This week as I was writing more achievement cards, and flashing them, it’s helped to drive home how much I’ve already done that I wanted to throughout my life to this point. So much accomplished by desire and effort, but yet, so much more potential to do more is ahead…

Previously I had a pattern of learning, but often not applying much of what I learned. I was held, or holding back. Now, I know it’s time to become the person I need to be, to do the things I know I should be doing, to accomplish what is ahead that I desire. (Be – do – have!) It’s time to step up to be who I know I should be – exercise more leadership, be more visible, create some impact and legacy. I feel it’s closer all the time, and it will soon become my reality.

This past year, a couple of times I was told by one of my business associates and mentors to feel free to build and “make a spectacle out of myself.” While I felt at the time that wasn’t totally out of the realm of possibilities for me, I held back and didn’t do it. While I made some headway and kick started some things, I didn’t really play big, like I could have. I was able to rank advance and made my business target goal, but have since wondered what would have happened if I had really applied myself more and pulled out all the stops?!

Due to accepting the challenge of listening to “The Strangest Secret In The World” for the next 30 days, and reading “The Greatest Salesman” Scroll 4 this week, I’ve been thinking about standing out (and being more comfortable with) displaying my uniqueness, versus blending in, conforming to the norms, and being a party to mediocrity. Why is it that there is so much of that? Why has it become okay for our education system to turn everyone into compliant working drones? Why do we have this unwritten code of tolerating each other’s mediocrity? (If you don’t call me on mine, I won’t call you on yours.) I’m feeling the call to help others wake up, recognize and break free from the Matrix.

I am born for this time, and have been being prepared…
